I hate to deliver bad news, but to use scaners over an RDP connection you
need both:

1. 3rd party application like Remote-Scan
2. Thin-Client Terminal w/ XPe

The reason you need XPe is because you need to be able to install the
scanner driver on the thin-client and the Remote-Scan server software on the
thin-client.

I use Wyse 9150SE Thin-Clients with USB Attached Scanners and Remote-Scan
and they work very well. I even have several PC workstations running
remote-scan so we can scan across a wireless bridge using terminal server and
limited bandwidth.

3rd party add-ons like Remote-Scan:

Thank you for your response!
I see some articles , they says ICA/RDP can map thin-client's I/O ports
to terminal server, so programms can deal thin-client's I/O ports the same
as ports on terminal server. If that's true?? If thin-client's usb port can
be mapped to the server, does that mean scanner can run in WinCE terminal ??

Thanks again...

No, that's not how it works.

Some devices (for example: keyboards and printers) work within an
rdp or ica session, when they are connected to an USB port, but
such a redirection is done on the level of the device, not the
port.

From http://ts.veranoest.net/ts_faq.htm

Q. How can I connect to my local scanner in a TS session?

A. Windows rdp does not support redirection of local scanners
(Device Level redirection) or USB ports (Port Level redirection).
For an explanation of Device versus Port Level redirection, see
Citrix KB article
CTX816193 - USB Support in MetaFrame Products
http://knowledgebase.citrix.com/kb/entry.jspa?externalID=CTX816193

which applies to Citrix PS 3.0 and native Windows 2003 Terminal
Services.

Citrix Presentation Server 4.0 (Enterprise and Advanced Editions
only) provides TWAIN support; local scanners and USB attached
digital cameras are now supported.

Other solutions are based on sharing the scanner on the network.
This can be done with a number of 3rd party utilities:

* RemoteScan - lets you share any kind of TWAIN scanner (SCSI / USB
/ Firewire, etc.)
http://www.remote-scan.com/
* LWP DokScan for RDP
http://www.lwp.de/dokscanrdp.html?&L=1
* ScanShare Pro - from Netcore (SCSI scanners only)
http://www.netcore.com.tw/product.htm
* Some scanner models include network scanner sharing, and are
accessible by terminal server users.

Note that other devices, such as keyboards and printers, work
perfectly well when connected to a local USB port, thanks to Device
Level redirection.

For TWAIN Redirection on a thin-client device, you MUST use XPe, unless
someone has come out with Linux or CE scanner drivers that I'm unaware of.

Question: What type of scanner are we talking about? Bar Code Scanner or a
flat bed scanner? I have seen clients use the same name for both. Each are
different for support with WinCE.Net terminal clients. The use of bar code
scanners best done with a keyboard wedge cable rather than a USB port, but
both redirect to the WTS. Where as the flat bed scanner requires support
that was listed by Patrick.
